As a wedding blogger I really love weddings and everything about them. So it's only natural that there are wedding themes I admire and others I simply can't get enough of. In the wedding that photographer Nikos Gogas and Rock Paper Scissors events shared with us, one of my dream wedding themes came true. Everyone who knows me know that I have a soft spot for stripes and especially black and white ones; so I couldn't but love the wedding of Elina and Patrick at the magical seaside Ble Azur. The perfect combination of black and white with gold details and the white flowers ensured for a very chic and glamorous result.
Patrick said to us: “We first met in the university auditorium during a risk management lecture, while studying in The Netherlands. But I knew that it needs more than bragging about my risk management knowledge to impress a woman like Elina. Maybe the saying that love comes from the heart but passes through the stomach is what could impress her? “Let’s give it a try”, I said and enrolled for cooking lessons. Most likely the 4 course meal on my birthday was not the only reason to win her heart but it certainly helped.
Studies became once more the excuse to spend more time together when Elina moved to Switzerland to study German. For the proposal I prepared a little paradise for her in a unique place in Switzerland: Roses were flowing down a river, champagne was sparkling in glasses, candles were flickering on the cliffs and a story board was describing our love journey.
The wedding mirrored our relationship but even more so my time with Elina: A big glamorous exciting party!”
